To get you started with some help, do you have any female friends with a Cricut machine? My girlfriend has one and she makes me really cool stuff to put on anything for example my refrigerator and DJ gear. Here are some of the stuff the Cricut machine can make. You can make almost anything if you put your mind to it. You might have to ask your friends if they have one. Oh and yes they are water proof so you can use them outside. I have a few of my VTX 1800.
